2:32 am
their health care isn't a glitch. >> president obama will be in boston, massachusetts today to speak about the affordable care act. reportedly he'll use the massachusetts health care law as an example of how obama care can succeed. if recent revelations about the extent of the nsa spying abroad were meant to shame the country, it didn't work. director of national intelligence james clapper saying the u.s. had spied on foreign leaders for years. he says those countries have returned the favor drawing a cinematic comparison. >> do you believe the allies have conducted or at anytime any type of espionage activity against the united states of america our intel against services or others? >> absolutely. it reminds me of casablanca. my god, there is gambling going on here? same kind of thing. >> on what ground?
2:33 am

2:36 am
this sort of enthusiasm for it. so what's the feeling like and why? >> i'll tell you one reason why. because too many people haven't been invested in this rightly. we've had 24% to the up side on the s&p so far this year and they're thinking i'm worried, i better own some of it or my investors will say why did i miss out. but as you say, the enthusiasm is tempered. for instance only 52.5% of companies reporting in this earnings season are actually beating expectations on revenue. on revenue itself, sales only about half are beating expectations. so the numbers in sales are pretty average. data is not that great. but everyone is thinking no tapering and so moving to the the up side. >> what about s.a.c. settlement? >> right. this investigation has been going on pretty much the whole time you were at cnbc almost. the best part of seven years

2:38 am
had loss after loss. >> i guess they can hold on to the shares for a longer period of time, but no one seems to want it. steve, thank you very much. moving on to other news, growing claims of racial profiling at new york city retailers have prompted the state's attorney general to demand the sotores hand over shp and frisk policies. a number of african-american customers say they have been stopped and questioned at macy's and barney's. among them, actor rob brown who is suing. he told the daily news he was detained in june after he bought a watch for his mom. after investigating macy's says it determined the nypd stopped him and nypd says they were acting on information from store security. this is an awesome story. pope francis, the main attraction at the vatican as he always is, but there was a little boy who actually stole
